My first post on this thread seems very quaint now

About six years ago, I used to go to a local open mic and try out my songs. The fear of flubbing was much greater than the enjoyment I got being on stage and getting compliments so I quit. I still write songs, but have found I enjoy crafting them more than performing. My guitar teacher and I work on them and occasionally I'll play the recording to friends and family, but even that's pretty rare.

My son was surprised last month when I played him some songs and they were good. That was good enough for me.

Got them ol' Breakfast Burrito Blues?
Hip Someone who knows the score. Someone who understands jive talk Someone who is with it The expression is not subject to definition because, if you don't dig what it means, no one can ever tell you.

I know nothing about guitars in terms of what is 'desirable' and what is not but I just rented a Fender with a plug in as I'm playing in public a lot and I can't keep borrowing other people's. My old Epiphone is a little raggedy. Anyway, ducking hell. I brought it home and it's like playing a pat of butter. Gorgeous. Can't wait till my next show!
